Flash Fiction Competition: $20,000 for 100 Words!

The César Egido Serrano Foundation launches the V International Flash Fiction Competition

I just submitted my 100 words for a chance to win $20,000.  I enjoyed it so much, here’s 100 words to convince you to try it too:

Writers, you probably throw away hundreds of words every day so this is just worth it. If you only dabble in writing, this dabble could pay. You cannot go wrong giving this a shot, or two for free!

Once you check out the simple guidelines, I’m sure you’ll come up with great ideas; better than mine, perhaps. However, I won’t be so envious when you win if you’ll use my code below to register because I’ll get $1,000 for having made you aware of the opportunity; plus, once you’ve submitted, you’ll receive a code to promote to all your friends.

A candle is not dimmed by lighting another!

Please use my Identification CODE when you register:    41663

Hurry, the deadline is: November 23, 2017:  A maximum of two stories per person of no more than 100 words each, should be submitted from the following link:

https://www.fundacioncesaregidoserrano.com/en/activities/short-tales-contest/5-edition/participation-form/lang/en-GB

Once you register, if you consider it appropriate to inform your contacts, and one of them is winner in the contest, you will also get a $1,000 prize.

May your good fortune increase!

Trayvon Receives Posthumous Bachelor’s Degree in Aeronautical Science

Martin had a “love of flying”

On May 13, 2017 Trayvon Martin will be honored with posthumous bachelor’s degree in aeronautical science from Florida Memorial University.

The bachelor’s degree in “Aeronautical Science with a concentration in Flight Education” will be conferred to Trayvon Martin, the school said, “in honor of the steps he took during his young life toward becoming a pilot.”

Florida Memorial University is a historically black college in Miami Gardens, Florida where Trayvon Martin lived at the time of his death.

Martin had a “love of flying,” the school says, and had aspired to become a pilot.

Sabrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, Martin’s parents, will accept the degree on their son’s behalf at Florida Memorial University’s commencement ceremony on May 13, the school announced this week. Born in February 1995, Martin would be 22 years old, an age many US college students attain a bachelor’s degree.

Fulton is an alumnus of the school, and the university already houses the Trayvon Martin Foundation, co-founded by Trayvon’s parents.
